A brief description of the services sought:
MSDGC receives numerous hydraulic model submissions by various contractors in any given year. Depending on the dates of delivery, the scale of the work and MSDGC’s internal work load, MSDGC cannot provide effective and timely review of all submitted models. To reduce the delay in the projects associated with these models, MSDGC requires additional assistance. MSDGC will also be developing a streamlined set of review criteria. MSDGC requires assistance in collecting the background information necessary to develop the new templates for review.
The following are the tasks/deliverables to be performed:
1. Develop revised templates for model submittal
2. Assist MSD with revised guidelines for model development and review
3. Review and assist with the implementation of QA/QC procedures for internal and external modeling related to the revised templates and guidelines
4. Provide review of selected models as directed by MSDGC. This may include validation to more recent data
